Martrese is a dynamic design professional with over twenty years of experience in various aspects of corporate graphic design, including 17 years at the Estée Lauder Companies in New York, where she specialized in public relations, packaging production, and design operations experience.
After moving to Portland, Oregon, in 2008, she was the lead graphic designer at a family-owned equestrian apparel and supply company – quite appropriate for a designer who has never quite outgrown her childhood love of drawing ponies! She is currently the graphic designer and digital content developer for the curriculum team at KinderCare Education, LLC. She is also a freelance graphic designer/art director/project manager who develops creative ideas and produces cost-effective solutions to meet clients’ needs for product packaging, logos, websites, advertising, books, magazines, posters, exhibitions and displays, corporate communications, and corporate identity.
Martrese’s high-energy joie de vivre is readily apparent whether she’s directing a photoshoot at work or traveling the world to participate in the agony and glory of running marathons. She also enjoys horseback riding, SCUBA diving, and volunteering for the Friends of Mt. Tabor Park.
